Artist Kiseki Himura announced on Monday that the short anime of his Getsuyōbi no Tawawa (Tawawa on Monday) illustrations will now stream on Nico Nico Video. The second episode is already available, along with the first episode.
The second episode centers on an office worker and his subordinate who always supports him, even after he is called back to the office to work through the night. Ai Kayano voices the subordinate, while Yasuaki Takumi voices the office worker. Himura posted the accompanying art on his Twitter account as the 87th illustration in the series.
YouTube had removed the first episode from NBCUniversal Entertainment Japan's YouTube channel last week, before restoring it on Thursday. Himura posted a statement last Tuesday, saying that the anime will be "relaunched." When the first episode was restored on YouTube, Himura clarified that it was not the relaunch that he had previously announced.
NBCUniversal Entertainment Japan plans to release a new episode every Monday, with accompanying art posted on Himura's Twitter account.
Hiroyuki Yoshii is designing the characters. Kosuke Murayama is directing the anime at PINE JAM, and is also drawing the storyboards. Takashi Mamezuka is the animation director. Ryo Takahashi is credited for the production desk, and Daisuke Kobayashi is credited for production advancement. Akiko Kikuchi and Hiroki Matsumoto are the art directors, while Mayuko Koyama is credited with art design. Ryotaro Nakano is director of photography, and Yasuji Sakagami is credited with color design. Jin Aketagawa is credited for sound direction, and Yoshiaki Dewa is composing the music. Shinsaku Tanaka and Yasutomo Suzuki are credited with planning.
